John Freeman interviews the racing car driver Stirling Moss. (1960)

John Freeman interviews the racing car driver Stirling Moss. Nearly 30 years later, Freeman revealed to the broadcaster Anthony Clare that this was virtually the only interview that pleased him. Freeman had considered Moss a playboy but their encounter showed the racing driver to possess a "cold, precise, clinical judgement... a man who could live so close to the edge of death and danger, and trust entirely to his own judgement." (1960)
